Building and editing Curves.

Surprisingly, no one mentioned this. In your Curve SOP, you can manually shift-LMB on the curve to add more point. To add more point after one of the end of the curve, simply click on the first of the last point, and shift click on empty space and voila. No need for Resample SOP unless It's absolutely necessary. :) Oh, and, I was using 5.5. I don't can't really recall if this is the same for 5.0... Most Sincerely, P.

The modelling paradigm has shifted, so you can no longer lock a SOP and monkey around to your heart's content. Bit of a bummer and a major gripe of mine. I don't think it is possible to select multiple points in the curve SOP. Could be wrong though ( I often am ). If you want to add new points use the refine or resample SOP, or better still model in 4 and import into 5. Bit of a downer, but that's the price of progress :-) Jerry
